BLOOD ORANGE
"Devonté Hynes is Blood Orange, also known by his Lightspeed Champion alias, and as a former member of Test Icicles. He first started recording as Blood Orange in 2008 in Brooklyn, New York, releasing several demos in 2009 via his personal blog. In terms of side projects and unofficial material Dev Hynes must be amongst the most prolific in the game right now. His accumulative discography would dwarf acts who have been around twice as long and he's launched yet another project. Blood Orange is a lo-fi lounge pop outfit, not a million miles from Lightspeed Champion but one that moves away from the latters alternative country tendencies. Regardless of his stage name, Dev is a multi-talented songwriter, composer and musician from the UK whose new moniker, Blood Orange, is a fresh sound of pop and surf. Dev says he sings differently on this record, much more calculated and it has its own life to it. Equipped with his guitar and black Macbook, Dev seamlessly guides through a storybook of songs for his live shows, most of which would cause one to dance; an energetic display of melodramatic lyrics and bouncy beats." --Last.fm

Born out of desperation in the brutal Canadian winter of 2009, Robert Alfons and Maya Postepski began writing songs about nostalgia, lust, and erotomania. TRUST combine dark synth arpeggios, live and programmed drum beats with haunting, effected vocals. What begins in the genre of minimal synth progresses into a sort of slow-techno that is equal parts introspective cold-wave and extroverted 808 dance beats. Their debut video directed by Eva Michon, shows a playful side to the duo as they ride around nature on a motorbike together, later though, it hints at the pair's darker undercurrent when an Equus inspired incident unfolds. "Candy Walls" is a gorgeous and unapologetically sexual debut, which will be heavily blogged about. It's an undeniable beat matched with a stunning and unique aesthetic.
